Former President Shimon Peres Released from Hospital

Tuesday, January 19th, 2016

Former President Shimon Peres was released Tuesday from Sheba Hospital at Tel Hashomer Medical Center in Tel Aviv, five days after entering for treatment of a mild heart attack.

“Five exciting days have gone by for me,” Peres told reporters. The 92-year-old former statesman underwent cardiac catheterization last Thursday after an angiogram revealed the narrowed artery in his heart.

“I am very happy to return to work, and there is much work to do. This was the goal of my recovery,” he told reporters.

Peres was scheduled to participate tomorrow in the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. However, doctors have advised him not to travel to the conference. It is not yet clear whether he will comply with the advice.

“I want to thank the wonderful team of doctors and nurses who treated me and who reminded me of the spirit of Tel Hashomer, where everyone is equal, and which treats people as well as the diseases themselves,” he said.

Bennett Recalls Sharon’s Sins but Says Remember His Good Deeds

Thursday, January 2nd, 2014

Naftali Bennett, chairman  of the Jewish Home party, wrote on his Facebook page that former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, barely hanging on to his life, did some awful things and then  turned around and said he should be remembered for his good deed.

“There certainly are many people, including myself, who are very angry at Sharon for the expulsion of more than 8,000 Jews from Gush Katif and over the disastrous aftershocks to Israel, events that should never be allowed to occur again. But at this time, when Arik Sharon is struggling for his life, we must remember his merits.”

Sharon’s condition continues to be critical, and doctors are speaking in terms of “days” before his body is likely to succumb to a collapse of his health.

His sons Gilad and Omri remain at his bedside, and security has been beefed up to prevent unauthorized people from getting near his room in the Tel HaShomer Medical Center in Tel Aviv.

“I am not a prophet, but the doctors and Sharon’s sons feel there has been a change for the worse,” said Prof. Ze’ev Rothstein, director of Tel HaShomer. “We thought it would be advisable to notify the media of the deterioration in his condition the last couple of days, and we regard him as being in critical condition with a decided danger to his life.”

He explained that the former Prime Minister’s weakened condition does not allow doctors to perform the same procedures that previously have been used, and that the medical staff only can support his system and try to treat complications that have set in.

Would Hawking Meet Paraplegic Arab Saved by Israel?

Tuesday, May 14th, 2013

Columnist David Suissa, the founder of OLAM magazine, has challenged theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking to visit a three-year old Gaza paraplegic who is being cared for by Israel.

Hawking shocked the entire Israel political spectrum, from left to right, by his boycotting President Shimon Peres annual “Presidential Conference’ because of the “occupation.”

Hawking who is severely handicapped by a deteriorating disease and is confined to a wheelchair, is able to communicate through a device that is run by a computer chip designed and developed in Israel.

“Instead of getting upset at Hawking, I would rather we invite him to visit the Edmond and Lily Safra Children’s Hospital, part of the Tel HaShomer complex in the Israeli city of Ramat Gan, Suissa wrote in the Los Angeles Jewish Journal.

There, he would meet a three-year-old Arab toddler with no arms and no legs, named Mohammed al-Farra.

“Mohammed was born in Gaza with a rare genetic disease. His parents abandoned him, and the Palestinian government refused to pay for his care.

“As soon as he was born, he was rushed to Israel for emergency treatment. As reported in Huffpost, his genetic disorder left him with a weakened immune system and crippled his bowels, and an infection destroyed his hands and feet, requiring them to be amputated.

“Since then, he has spent his days and nights in an Israeli hospital undergoing treatment and learning how to use prosthetic limbs. His grandfather lives with him. Mohammed has been warmly embraced and cared for by his Israeli doctors, who have arranged for him and his grandfather to live in the sunny pediatric ward.”

Suissa asked, “I wonder what kind of boycott Hawking would have in mind after meeting little Mohammed, and after learning about the thousands of other Arab children from the West Bank and Gaza who are routinely cared for in Israeli hospitals?

“Well, I can think of at least one: It would be a boycott of every country in the world that neglects to care for disabled children like Steven Hawking and Mohammed al-Farra.”

Wife of ‘Businessmen’s Rabbi’ Attempted Suicide following Bribery Charges

Sunday, October 14th, 2012

Deborah Pinto, wife of Rabbi Yoshiyahu Pinto, who is suspected, along with her husband, of trying to bribe a senior police officer, attempted suicide on Sunday by taking pills. Mrs. Pinto, who was picked up for questioning last Thursday, together with her husband, and was released with him under restrictive conditions, is in satisfactory condition at the Sheba Medical Center in Tel Hashomer, Walla reported.

Rabbi Pinto released a statement saying: “We pray for the well being of the Rebbetzin along with thousands of followers. Our attorneys warned the authorities about her condition. Unfortunately, they did not show here the required sensitivity. We are certain that she will recover soon and say what she has to say to the investigators, until all of them understand that there was nothing wrong with her behavior and that a great injustice has been done.”

At the end of his interrogation today, Rabbi Pinto was taken to the hospital, where he is staying by his wife’s bed. He received a special suspension of his house arrest so he can be with his wife. Many associates and family members have arrived at the hospital.

The investigation against Rabbi Pinto and his wife began a few weeks ago, after Pinto allegedly offered the chief of the police investigations division chief, Brigadier General Bracha, hundreds of thousands of shekels in return for details of an ongoing police investigation. The officer reported the offer to the head of the Investigations Department, General Yoav Segalovitch, who sent Bracha back to gather evidence against the rabbi. When he became convinced an investigation was called for, Segalovitch appointed a special investigation team to handle the sensitive case.

Rabbi Pinto and his wife returned last Thursday from the U.S. and the moment they landed were taken for questioning in the city of Ramla, where investigators told them of the bribe allegations against them. In addition, police are considering charges of money laundering against the rabbi and his wife. They couple have both denied the allegations.

At the end of the investigation, they were taken to a hearing before a judge, where police asked that they be released under restrictive conditions—house arrest—as well as post bail of 1 million shekel each and be forbidden to leave the country for six months.

Rabbi Josiah Pinto is considered the spiritual leader of prominent Jewish businessmen in Israel and around the world. In recent years, many business leaders have been making pilgrimages to Rabbi Pinto’s house, and accompany him on his annual journey to the grave of Rabbi Eliezer Papo (1785–1828, author of Pele Yoetz, a manuscript on ethical behavior) in Bulgaria.

Among those tied to the rabbi, are Shari Arison, Nochi Dankner, Jacky Ben-Zaken and Ilan Ben Dov.

Rabbi Pinto, who began his career in Ashdod, now divides his time between Israel and Manhattan, where he mentors a large community of Jewish businessmen. He counsels businessmen before they make major transactions, and in many cases serves as an arbitrator in financial disputes. Last June, Israel Forbes magazine estimated Rabbi Pinto’s fortune at $75 million.
